In Arcade Mode players can choose from six different paths and compete in matches against CPU opponents to reveal unique endings based on player performance. Extra Battle Mode is a series of time exclusive challenges for players to use Fight Money for the chance to receive an exclusive premium outfit each month. If all four challenges are completed each month, a special premium costume exclusive to this mode will become available. More details on the new modes and features, including the new User Interface, will be shared at a later date.
Players of Street Fighter V and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be placed into the same player pool through PS4 and PC cross-platform play. The initial Street Fighter V purchase is still the only one that consumers need to make to ensure they always have the most up-to-date version of the title. All of the post launch gameplay content, such as the DLC characters in Street Fighter V, is earnable completely free of charge through various in-game challenges and Fight Money. Content can also be obtained instantly using purchased in-game currency.
Season 2 of the 2017 Character Pass and DLC content for Street Fighter V continues until the end of the year, with one final character still to be announced and released, along with a host of additional costumes.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be available on PlayStation 4 and PC for $39.99 on January 16, 2018
